I think it does raise the stress around the stem, which can't be good. Stems are notorious weak points on the tube. Probably a bigger deal with higher pressure tires though.
With a little luck, it should not be a problem as is. If it is not too much problem it would be worthwhile deflating the tire and spinning it back a bit. It sometimes does take a bit of effort to move it, and I am not sure how easily you can do it under the circumstances.
At the risk of sounding too careful, I might also add that however hard it will be to do now, it will be harder to deal with on the road if the tube gives.
